There is currently an important movement that I suggest you study; it is the buy silver movement. It has existed forever, but its importance may have never had this potential. Silver, just like gold, is monie. It may not be as valuable, but it is still monie. There are some key facts to consider while learning about silver. I will go over some of them now.
Above ground bullion is around equal to gold. I think this happened for two reasons. First people forgot its importance as monie. Second, it became an important commodity. Technology, from medical equipment to devices, uses silver. It is one of the most conductible metals around. It is highly valuable in this regard. It also continued to be used up for photography. Now there is not much silver, which makes the market easy to corner. But if it is rare why is it so cheap?
Currently John Pierpont Morgan, the House of Morgan, is short some insane number of silver contracts (reportedly 3.3 billion ounces). This makes silver much much cheaper. Why would a Major bank, the one with a level of influence that rivals Goldman Sachs, want silver to be cheap?
The Major banks do the bidding of the Federal Reserve Bank, or is it the other way around? Either way, they operate in sync. The silver manipulation is a smart way to keep their respected businesses going. This is how:
Silver has historically traded at a ration of one ounce to five gallons of gasoline. Gasoline has a direct relationship with the dollar. Not only because the dollar is its trade unit, but because US politicians have a fancy relationship with the former "swing producer" the House of Saud. We all know the Bush family relationship.
Now that there is no swing producer, now that the dollar can not support oil trade, the ponzi is vulnerable. Silver is the key to depegging this FIAT ponzi from various markets, and the best thing about it is anybody who capitalizes on this does just that. This is a way for people to take down the system, and put something of value in their pocket.
